How the Big Guy Proposed....
Over at Kelly's Korner, we are talking about proposals!
Since I just got married (you can see photos and stories, here, here and here), this is a nice way to wrap up the wedding stuff.
He proposed in the car on the way home from Costco.
We were discussing a story on the news about a woman who posted a video on facebook on the birth of her child. A full on, show the goods, video. My response was "why would you do that?!" As we were chatting about that, the Big Guy says, "you know, your Christmas list is kinda small, are you hinting at something?"
My reply was "NO! Of course not!" (it was small because, well, I couldn't think of anything!).
So, as we discussed weddings for the 800th time in our almost 5 years of dating, I finally looked at him and said, "Are you asking me to marry you?"
He said, "What if I am? Would you say 'yes'?"
I said, "Of course I would!"
And that my friends is when we laughed out loud and said at the same time..."Did we just get engaged?"
A few days later, a ring was placed on my finger and we got married on May 22nd.
And I couldn't be happier.
I know folks want the fairytale proposal...one knee, romance, flowers. Not me. I knew we would marry, and honestly, I didn't need the romance. I just needed to know he was ready.
Now head back over to Kelly's Korner for more because I'm sure there are some WONDERFUL, lovely propsals that don't take place in a car, driving 70 MPH down the interstate.
And for the record, I wouldn't change any of it.
